This Google Slides Digital Math Manipulative Mats resource includes 36 math mat slides with moveable everyday digital math manipulatives for students to drag and drop as they work. Each mat includes stacked copies of each manipulative, a note space, and a workspace.

Digital manipulatives eliminate the need for sharing physical manipulatives that need to be disinfected between uses. They won't break or become misplaced. This makes them ideal for distance learning and/or classrooms with social distancing measures in place.


The following moveable math manipulatives and math tools are included:

  • counters (moveable, 3 options - bears, cubes, circular)
  • ten frames (with moveable red and yellow markers)
  • parts & total / parts & whole diagram* (with moveable red and yellow markers)
  • pattern blocks (moveable, options with and without patterning line)
  • number lines (with moveable transparent markers, 3 options)
  • 100 / 120 charts (with moveable transparent markers, 4 options)
  • base ten blocks (moveable tens and ones / hundreds, tens, and ones / thousands*, hundreds, tens and ones options included, each with and without headings on work mat)
  • money (with moveable coins and bills, 4 options included )
  • 2D shapes (moveable shapes with 3 mat options for sorting)
  • 3D shapes (moveable shapes with 3 mat options for sorting)
  • clock* (with moveable hands - suggested for teacher use as hands may be challenging for students to rotate precisely)
  • color tiles* (moveable tiles with gridlines provided in workspace)

* Starred options were added in a product update on 8/9/20. Please redownload for new links if you purchased before that date.

Please see the previews for a closer look at each individual math manipulative mat.


I’ve included all the math mats as a single slide deck as well as individual slide decks divided by manipulative type to make sharing them in Google Classroom as convenient as possible!

To use this resource you will need:

  • access to the internet
  • a Google account for yourself and each student

Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful, recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.
Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
